The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010

Vanitas Vanitatum Et Omnia Vanitas!

Vanitas Vanitatum Et Omnia Vanitas! 

This was etched here for the few, never ever for the many;
It is meet to start a feud, against those whose words are empty.

Without proper Anti-Thesis, there can be no Synthesis
Else stagnation settles in and there is little more than this  

{ Sardonic inscription, spray-painted on walls
Shot out from reactionary hips
Stray bullet urging bystander:
Plug your ears and seal your lips
Except if you've something worth saying
That hasn't already been said
Recreation is an act of playing
Inside somebody else's poor head }

Who dares to defy their own impulses?  Who can rebuff the current's flow?
A dowse among sand dunes proves shallow, unless water surges below.

Bring forth your sublime inner essence — dodging naysayers and sycophants
Absence of Ego is presence, for those possessed by pure providence!

Don't be shy, REPLY!
